The purpose of this project was to create better access to an existing online community resource guide, and produce supplemental materials highlighting coping strategies, to enable counselors at the Tacoma Vet Center (TVC) to educate their clients, (veterans with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder [PTSD]) about resources and strategies that would empower them to participate fully in all areas of occupation and to increase their quality of life. This project included a document with hyperlinks to online saved searches, an instruction manual for navigating and customizing the saved searches, and a workbook of information, activities and strategies for clients to utilize. The counselors at TVC used the combination of the hyperlinks to saved searches and the instruction manual to find community resources for their clients, and found the workbook useful in helping their clients learn strategies to cope with symptoms of PTSD.
